About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?

The virtual Summer Scheme ran very smoothly. Lasting 4 days, it gave me a good insight into the type of work that I would be involved in at RPC. I met the GL&M team virtually and it was easy to meet and get to know them, even though the scheme was not in person.
5 /5

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Extremely! It was clear that the firm puts a huge focus on early career recruitment and that trainees are important to everyone at the firm. Everyone I spoke to was willing and happy to give up some of their time to speak to me.
5 /5

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?

My supervisor, my buddy and graduate recruitment were always happy to help with all of my questions.
5 /5

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Having no legal work experience before the virtual Summer Scheme, I had no insight into what my capabilities, strengths and weaknesses were in the legal arena. I now have an idea of the type of work I could be doing and my areas of improvement.

8. To what extent did the virtual experience help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

RPC's culture - friendly, approachable, personable, supportive, collaborative!

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Prior to the scheme, I had no real interest in medical liability. Now, if successful at RPC I will be looking to pursue this as a seat on my TC.

Everything Else

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

£400 for the week - very adequate!

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Plenty - I reached out to some people on my own accord. They also organised a speed networking event which was really good and allowed me to meet people from a range of practice areas.
5 /5

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Good! The trainees hosted a quiz and we were able to take part in the firm wide yoga session.
5 /5

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

Yes - D&I and CSR are big at RPC. We found out about how we could get involved in these.
